drawing birds

have been drawing quite a few birds lately.
I picked up a few new Pitt brush pens and decided to try them out and I have been meaning to try and draw birds for a while.
When we went to to Qld last year i made a list of all the birds i spotted and IDed correctly, and had decided to try and draw them all, but I hadn't got around to doing any until now. (though only 5 of these birds drawings are on that list, 2 of these are ones i saw in melb. zoo:)
first I've only drawn birds that i have photo reference of, and that i have taken those photos of the bird myself.
I have also tried to do a sketch/drawing a day this year, as well as a photo a day. so far the drawing slipped when i went away to Tas, but i have managed to draw a lot more since I've been back home.
still having problem running off the page, may switch to a larger sketch book ;p

sketch: Seagull sketch: Pied heron
Crested tern sketch Sketch: white-browed woodswallow
Sketch: Masked Lapwing (Spur wing plover) Sketch: Swan
Sketch: Magpie-lark (pee-wee)
silver(sea)gull, pied heron, crested tern, white-browed wood swallow, masked lapwing (spur-wing plover), Swan, magpie-lark (pee-wee)

I like the duck.
The Maggie looks evil, as magpies are wont to do.

Oh, so you did.
Swan, then.

But I don't know the diff between a Magpie and a Magpie-Lark, so close enough. :)

The swan looks like it's about to attack, so that's pretty accurate.

That seagull is looking at me funny.

...must be a realistic one then. They always seem to be looking at me funny:)

These are great!

yeah seagulls will do that, specially if you have a chip, or possible might have a chip, or maybe could have a chip soon, you have any chips?

Now all can think of is the gulls in Finding Nemo!

Mine? Mine? Mine! Mine! Mine!

Seagull and Swan are my faves - but that Swallow looks ticked off and planning something! :)
